Not sure if this idea has been brought up before.

Should GRRM have a cameo in the tv series, a la Peter Jackson in the Lord of the Rings? In the latter case, PJ appeared for a few seconds in all three films, which didn't take away from the drama on-screen, but was enough for the fans to titter about. I found it pretty neat.

Thoughts?

I could be fun.
I think he did a cameo on Pilot episode, but was cut when they re-shot the 1st episode.

yes! he needs a cameo! preferably once an episode as an extra XD but I know that's not always logical so I'd settle for once a season.

HBO put Charlaine Harris in an episode of True Blood and gave her a line... I'd love to see GRRM in his world!

He could be one of the Lords supporting Renly in ACOK, you could see him in the crowd at the Tourney / Feast for Renly when Cat shows up.

He could have to bend a knee to Joff.

And then show up at Joff's wedding. Maybe even see a shot of him at Tyrion's trial/trial by combat.

Maybe they could dress him up as one of the Good Masters once Dany gets to Astapor. LOL. Put George in a tokar; I'd like to see that! /rofl2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':rofl:' />

I'd enjoy it if he cameo'd once a season, either playing the same character, or as a different character each season, forcing us to find him.

IIRC someone suggested that he show up once a season as a corpse/redshirt i.e. a "severed head" alongside good old dead ned...
would have been epic.

Before it was brought up that GRRM might have had himself in mind when creating the character of Wyman Manderly, and I think that would be great if he could pull it off. I do want him to have at least one appearance, given that this work of his should be really recognized, but it's all about the extent and ability.

He could definitely be a badass Manderly. I can just SEE him.

Let's hope his British accent is any good then.

I actually think this would be the one circumstance it could be circumvented. Martin has a really unique style of speaking, and it would make you look past that he doesn't exactly have the accent. The voice is also the primary problem, given that it is such an odd way to speak. I feel like it should be "field tested" to see if he could play any role. I just think Wyman would be great.

I think he would fit well as Asha's Nuncle, I believe his name is Harmund(?).

I'd love to see him as a scribe in Oldtown, been praised for his good work, but criticised for never meeting deadlines

Definately Manderly, I could see him delightfully snacking on a certain pie...,

This would be appropriate for many reasons.

Manderly is too big of a role for GRRM.

Care to elaborate? We haven't seen him try to act as of yet. How could we judge?

The last thing we need is for a time-consuming acting job to pull him away from finishing Winds of Winter.

But if we give him a cameo, let's give him the job of the High Septon after the riot in King's Landing, the one Tyrion picks who Cersei has Kettleblack murder. Not many speaking lines, only there for a while, but an important part and he gets to benefit from the pomp and circumstance.

Presumably the series would be complete by the time they get to this part in ADwD. Nothing's perfect, but it's certainly plausible. He's going to visit the set anyways, so go and blame him for that too.
